Fantasy football waiver wire advice, Week 11: Riley Cooper

Cooper's production has taken off with Nick Foles under center. Has he finally become a consistent fantasy asset?

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper was an afterthought when the season began. Considered one of the weakest starting receivers in the league, he was more famous for what he said off the field than what he did on it. For the most part, that held true when Michael Vick was the quarterback. Cooper was way off the fantasy radar.

Things changed when Nick Foles took over under center. Over the past two weeks, Cooper racked up eight catches for 241 yards and five touchdowns. Cooper has scored six of his seven touchdowns with Foles throwing the ball to him.

Fantasy impact: Were the last two games a fluke? It's possible, but Cooper clearly has Foles' trust and the two have developed remarkable chemistry in their time together. Once destined to spend the season on the waiver wire, Cooper will be a legitimate WR3 when the Eagles play the Redskins this week. Make sure to claim him while you can -- he's still available in 50 percent of Yahoo! leagues at this moment.
